Ballot Propositions in California and Other States Could Change the Tech Industry

States have emerged as a major driver of tech regulation in the absence of action from Washington. And it’s likely that outcomes of some state measures could shape the debate at the federal level about how digital privacy should be regulated, or whether Uber and Lyft should have to make drivers employees instead of contractors.
Yet tech trade groups would prefer these policies be developed through the traditional legislative process.
“I think these are highly complex issues that deserve the attention that the legislative process provides,” said Tom Foulkes, the state program director at BSA. “Whether you agree or not or think that the legislative process in America is flawed, it does give everyone a say in the process.”
